Album Review: "Resurgam" by Fink

Hey guys!

80% of the music I listen to in my free time,
is music that I found through running this website.

It's so amazing that along the way I find so many treasures that I get to share with you,
but also get to listen to whenever I'm not reviewing anything.

I don't want to spoil today's post for you, but I have to say - Fink are now on my playlist.
So, maybe they'll end up on yours too?

Opener and title track "Resurgam" is a hopeful track.
It's simple, yet deep. The thriving bassline is a huge highlight and frames the song with such elegance and determination.
Soft and mysterious synths, paired with spine chilling high hats make an impressive appearance and give the song more dynamic.
The hypnotizing vocals guide you through the track and offer so much hope, putting the focus on the words "I will rise up, I will rise again".

"Word To The Wise" is a hauntingly beautiful ballad which soaks you in and accompanies you in the calmer hours.
With vocals and piano being the main elements, it's the simplicity, that once again underlines the creative message "Resurgam" seems to have written all over it.

Final track "There's Just Something About You" has this sparkly guitar base, that just wraps you around its' finger and makes sure you stay throughout the track. It's refreshingly upbeat and ends the album on such optimistic tones.

To sum it up: The diversity of genres sprinkled into the mixture of this album, is nothing but impressive and addictive. The deeper you dive, the more layers you find - leaving you with so much respect for the creativity behind this album. 
"Resurgam" teaches us the importance of the bass.
